1975 Profile: Reuben Gant

Tight End
No. 88
Oklahoma State
"A preseason shoulder injury prevented Gant from making a serious challenge for a starting berth as a rookie. He suffered a separation in the Hall of Fame Game against St. Louis and missed almost the entire preseason. Reuben got into 13 regular season games, mostly in double tight end situations. His only pass reception of 1974 was in the Canton game (for 38 yards)- the play on which he was injured. He was Buffalo's number one choice in the '74 college draft.
Gant was a three-time honorable mention All-Big Eight and played both tight end and wide receiver at Oklahoma State. His career statistics were 35 receptions for 779 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was considered the best downfield blocker on the Cowboy offensive line. Reuben earned an invitation to the College All-Star Game in Lubbock, Texas. He also collected two letters in basketball.
Reuben's Oklahoma State major was radio-tv, film and public relations and he looks toward a career in broadcasting. He comes from a family of eight children. His hobbies include jazz music, horseback riding and hunting."
